months, as the government reaches its debt ceiling and can't borrow any more money. president obama wants to lift that ceiling. the republicans don't. and it appears we're heading for another "thelma and louise" ride to the edge. remember -- they went over. we'll discuss that possibility next week with paul krugman, the nobel laureate in economics and "new york times" columnist whose bestselling book, "end this depression now!" calls for full employment as an alternative to austerity. read it, then send us the question you would like me to put to paul krugman. meanwhile, another reality beckons and there's a menace more threatening than the fiscal cliff ever was. what should really be scaring the daylights out of us -- the crisis which could make all the others irrelevant -- is global warming. get this one wrong and it's over -- not just for the usa, but for planet earth. that's the message delivered by hurricane sandy, and by almost all the extreme weather of the past two years. and here in the first month of the new year, it's the message from the most informed scientists in the world.

street journal." let me start with you, president obama says the debt ceiling is nonnegotiable. but republicans in congress are going to use it as a negotiation tactic. you always say that government needs to get out of the way and let businesses grow. isn't not raising the debt ceiling to pay for bills already incurred. standing in the way of the economy? >> well you know, ali, you said this, the republicans view this as a good tool to try to discipline spending. i don't think they view this as a good tool. but i think they kind of view this as pain the only tool they have right now to try to get president obama to negotiate on spending cuts. as you quite correctly said, we just live heavied through the first of these cliffs, which was the fiscal cliff. we got by that one. democrats feel they had their day there and they did, they got their tax increase. republicans are still wondering when are we going to get around to reforming these big giant entitlement programs and maybe disciplining spending on the discretion aye side, i think there will be a showdown on the debt ceiling
